Lovely Drone Photography of Dolphins off North Wales Coast
Electronics shop manager Andrew Huddlestone from Abersoch, recorded the drone footage when he took his boat out near Saint Tudwal’s Island across the bay from Harlech in North Wales. The film shows what is believed to be the UK’s largest pod of bottlenose dolphins, which can been identified by their dorsal fin - as unique to an individual dolphin as a fingerprint is to a human.
It almost looks like it was shot in some tropical sea, not Britain’s cold, grey coastline.
These dolphins are resident in the area, and were only discovered last year. Bottlenose dolphins can commonly be seen in these waters, along the coast of North Wales and by Cardigan Bay.
The UK’s other significant population can be found in Moray Firth in Scotland, where they have protected status.
